The Grammy-award nominated vocalist’s most recent album has her interpreting the songs of one of the world’s most legendary rocks bands with A Tribute To Led Zeppelin.

Released last week, the nine-song album highlights the incredible spectrum that Led Zeppelin operated in. At the helm was producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance) and engineer Doug McKean (Goo Goo Dolls, Adam Lambert). The A-list musicians include Cavallo on guitar along with Tim Pierce (Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner), on bass was Chris Chaney (Rob Zombie, Slash), keyboards were Jamie Muhoberac (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones), on drums Dorian Crozier (Celine Dion, Miley Cyrus, Joe Cocker) and Matt Laug (Alanis Morissette, Alice Cooper), with orchestral arrangements by David Campbell (Muse, Beyoncé). All that was left was the final piece of the puzzle… the voice. 

Things began back when Cavallo was producing Hart’s previous album, War In My Mind (2019), and she did an impromptu version of ‘Whole Lotta Love’ in the control room during the session. It’s fitting then, that track proves to be the opening song of the album. From there, it’s a non-stop journey through ‘Kashmir’, ‘Stairway To Heaven’, the James Brown like funky strut of ‘The Crunge’, medleys of ‘Dancing Days’/’When The Levee Breaks’ and ‘No Quarter’/’Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You’ stand either side of ‘Black Dog.’  The penultimate song ‘Good Times Bad Times’ leads into the orchestral ballad ‘The Rain Song’, that closes the album.

Talking about the music and legacy of Zeppelin, Hart said, “it’s so beautifully done, it’s timeless. It will go on forever. Sometimes people come along, and they’re from another planet, and they make these pieces of art which will forever be.”

Alongside songs featured on A Tribute To Led Zeppelin, Hart’s ever-growing fanbase can look forward to songs from her critically acclaimed albums War In My Mind and Fire On The Floor among others when she tours.
